THE FUTURE: ANDREW WIGGINS
With the top pick of the 2014 NBA Draft, the Cleveland Cavaliers selected freshman phenom Andrew Wiggins out of Kansas. The 6-8, 200-pound Wiggins averaged 17.1 points and 5.9 rebounds per game in his lone season with the Jayhawks. What this gives the Cavaliers in the long term, is a powerful two way prospect who is already known for his defensive intensity. Wiggins has the ability to lock down an opposing teams best player. Blessed with undeniable talent, athleticism, and a high basketball IQ, Wiggins is highly viewed as a future perennial All-Star. His offensive game needs development, but he did show flashes of brilliance in every sense as a scorer. With the ability to slash to the bucket at will, a fluid mid range game, and a sweet stroke from the outside, Andrew Wiggins is definitely the best insurance policy the Cavaliers could have hoped for, regardless of what Lebron James may choose to do in free agency this summer.
Draft Grade: A+
